Today’s eats have been eaten on the run.
Quick breakfast eaten right before my run – 1/2 hemp bagel with almond butter and crofter’s jam.
I then ran 3.5 miles in 34 minutes. Plus 7 minutes warmup and about 5 minute cooldown. Foam rolling, stretching, and icing.
I’m trying to concentrate on taking shorter strides during my runs, and incorporating walking breaks every 5-8 minutes. Today’s run was an increase of 1/2 a mile.
Lunch was then quickly devoured as I was running to job#1 (nannying).
Roasted cauliflower (seasoned with olive oil, garlic salt, paprika & curry) with ketchup.
And in between showering, blow-drying, and straightening the hair, I managed to whip together a quick pizza and stick it in the oven.
Pasta sauce, Italian blend cheese, and garlic powder on a WW pita.
Please excuze my rugged nails.
Dinner was then consumed on the
run drive to job#2 (Old Navy).
Leftover butternut squash lasagna (I froze some last week). But since I was driving, this is an old picture 😉
I got home from my Old Navy shift exhausted and hungry. I finally got to collapse and eat rather than eat on the run 😉 Enter unpictured protein powder PB mixture (similar to Holly’s no bake cookies) that I wolfed down.
Oh and some of my new purchases (on “introductory price clearance” at Vons):
ummmmmmmmmmm pretty sure one of my new favorite flavors ever. Tastes like cookies n’ cream but with cookie dough instead of oreo chunks. Um yum.
I had about a serving total amongst both of them.
In more green news, I recently received a “Seeds of Change” package from Green Giant/My Blog Spark!
A reusable tote bag (love bringing these to the grocery store!)
